Summary: Although the graphics are light years above the graphics of Dead or Alive for the Playstation one, it becomes increasingly difficult to play at the higher difficulty levels. A solid game though.
Summary: Dead or Alive 2: Hardcore, aka DoA2:H, is more of a revamped version of the Dreamcast title with an extremely similar name. Story Mode is pretty similar to many fighting games. Fight enough fights then beat the 'big bad guy' to win the championship/title/belt/world domination/etc. Vs. mode is pretty basic as well. Team Battle is basic, choose a group of people and keep fighting until the last person on the team drops.
Summary: This is a good game with great graphics. The combos in fights are harder than Tekkens and get this, if you want to counter, you have to push square and the same buttons that your opponent pushes. On DOA3 on XBOX they made the countering easier by just pushing 1 button. The modes on offer are single player, two player, tag team, survival and sparring and probally more. You can watch CPU bots go at it to see what the game has to offer.
Summary: This game is a great fighter. Look at interactive backgrounds, a fair number of different fighting styles, nice # of characters, easy to get the grasp of but hard to get good at. Beginers will like the ease at first and appreciate the difficulty of intentionally doing moves as they play on. all in all one of the better fighters on the system...
Superb, but there could be more than just exclusive secrets

Summary: Pros: Superb Graphics Plenty of modes Great extras Great gameplay good voice acting beautiful 3D arenas The wemon, can't 4git them Tag mode is better than Tekken's cuz u fight till the last man is out nice replay value Easily one of the best fighting games avalible Cons: So-So music When u hit with a powerful move, sounds like a buildin fallin, pretty unrealistic sound effects Story mode pretty much makes no sence Wish it had a end movie gallery like Tekken Only 14...
Summary: This is a fun fighting game! Takes awhile to get use to the throwing your opponent and avoiding throws only to counter-throw, though. But that does help make the game more replayable. The graphics are GREAT! The story mode is [poor]! I am one of those that enjoys getting all the costumes for all the players, so it is good that each player has 3 costume more costumes to unlock on top of the standard 2 you get at the beginning.
